Banana Bars

I don't know if you guys remember my friend Kristin from across the hall, but she brought me some more bananas the other day. I had plans for banana bread but unfortunately the dorm kitchen has no loaf pan.. so I used an 8x8.
Additionally, I was using my mini-blender to mix all the liquid ingredients and it died.. forever. I'm bummed.

Banana Chocolate-Chip Bars

1 cup AP flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp flax meal
1/2 cup chocolate chips

3 Tbsp oil
1/2 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
3 small bananas
1/2 cup "milk"
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Mix the red. Separately, mix the blue. Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
I didn't have a timer so I kept an eye on it.. but I'm guessing it was somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes in an 8x8. Sorry to be so vague.

I'm sorry about your blender too! =(

But those banana bars look fantastic- next time I have ripe bananas, watch out!

i remember your lucky friend across the hall -- she offers brown bananas to the vegan goddess hoping they'll magically reincarnate to banana bars or muffins or other scrumptiousness. (sorry about your blender)
